Ok so first things first: I LOVED my flowers. They were stunningly beautiful and everything that I pictured in my head. I got tons of compliments on them and I can't stop admiring the pictures of them. Nola Flora did my bouquet as well as the hand flowers, centerpieces, candles, and other wedding decor. Everything they provided was top notch.
I had consultations with 7 or 8 florists (everyone from fancy florists to Whole Foods) and when I talked to Ashley and Nola Flora, I was sold. She was super easy to work with; very professional yet warm. I visited her at the shop and I loved the entire team and was impressed with all of the beautiful options they have for candles, vases, etc.
When I first talked to Ashley, I gave her a vague description of what I wanted and didn't know the names of many flowers. She was super patient and understood what I wanted even though I didn't articulate it all that well. I gave her a link to my pinterest page and she made it happen. I changed my mind several times throughout the process and she was super flexible.
I had heard from multiple married friends that they had gotten quotes from their florists and then ended up paying way more than that because the florists came in over budget. This did not happen with me. I ended up spending exactly what I wanted to spend and my flowers were exactly what I wanted. Couldn't be happier!

All of my flowers exceeded my expectations. I did not have an exact picture of what I wanted just an idea, and everything came out beautiful.

I used this florist for my wedding June 1. I didn't know much about different flower types just a general way I wanted the flowers to look. Nola Flora listened to my needs and were able to design just what I would want if I knew the difference from difference flowers. They were able to design the great floral arrangement I wanted but wasn't able to describe well. It was tasteful but not too much.

NOLA Flora did the flowers for my bridal shower and did an unbelievable job. I could not be happier with how the flowers looked. I don't now much about flowers but they took our vision and enhanced it with gorgeous centerpieces. One of my favorite parts of the shower was the floral garland draping the photobooth backdrop. That small touch added some much romance and whimsy to the vintage ceiling tile screen. I never would have thought of that myself.
The flowers were beautiful and fresh and perfectly placed. I highly recommend them for any bride to make her special day look heavenly!

My bouquet was perfect! I had a destination wedding in New Orleans and all of our correspondence was done via email and phone. They took the ideas of what I wanted and turned them into a beautiful arrangement. It was just gorgeous. The boutonniers and mother's flowers were perfect, as well as the centerpieces. Such a joy to work with.

I worked with Angela and from my first meeting with her I was impressed. She definitely knows her stuff and is prepared to work with you on any of your ideas. I had very simple requests and wanted to keep my budget for flowers very minimal. She never made me feel like something was too small which made me very comfortable. She is very detailed and really pays attention to what you want.

The most important aspect of my wedding to me (besides getting married) was the flowers. I am very big on flowers and I had a dream of how I wanted them to look at my wedding. Nola-Flora exceeded my expectations. The bouquets were stunning and the table arrangements were breathtaking. I received numerous comments on how beautiful they were and several people wanted to take them home.

Ashley was so great. I was a pretty hands-off bride when it came to my wedding flowers. I provided her with a general idea of what I liked and her creations were beautiful. She provided great advice for my ceremony, reception, bouquets and other items for the wedding. Her work was beautiful!

Nola Flora was exactly what I needed. One of their designers (Ashley) sat down with me to discuss my wedding wishes and design the flowers exactly as I described. I can't tell you the difference between a gardenia and a geranium, so this super helpful! Then, when I changed my wedding colors, she sat down with me all over again. All the way, they were professional and attentive. The flowers were delivered on-time and were absolutely beautiful. We received many compliments on the table centerpieces as well, for which I give all the credit to Ashley. Thanks for making my wedding beautiful!

The bouquet was exactly what I was looking for and the Jr Bridesmaids floral ball was perfect. She even coordinated with the bakery to put the same flowers on my cake. Overall a perfect experience!

I am not into flowers but I knew the look and feel I wanted at my wedding. I talked about everything other than flowers, and Ashley figured out what flowers I needed to fit my vision. When I walked down the aisle and saw the incredible bouquets, I thought, "she gets me!" They were exactly what I wanted! Thank you for making my wedding so beautiful!

My mother and I were so pleased with the flowers! Ashley did a wonderful job listening to everything I wanted and executing it! Somehow she was able to take the vision I had in the mind and make it real! Prior to the wedding, her email about all of the flowers was very descriptive and helpful. I loved loved loved my bouquet and the bridesmaid's bouquets. We also loved the beautiful centerpieces she created. I would recommend Ashley with NOLA Flora to anyone!!! Thanks for everything, Ashley!

Ashley did a wonderful job- and I was very particular on what exactly i wanted (down to the type of flower and what color). Very impressed.
We are so happy that Ashley loved her flowers!! She booked her wedding with us almost two years in advance. She said she wanted to make sure that we were available for her...so I have never been so happy to please a bride!! I absolutely LOVED her ...

Ashley did an amazing job on my bouquet and flowers! Since this was a destination wedding, I had to do all of my planning online and by phone. I told her what I was wanting and what she came up with was truly beautiful. She was knowledgable and creative and even filled my last minute request for additional flowers. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a great review! You were so much fun to work with...even over the phone! And I love your pics...especially the one with the Cowboy hat, Fabulous!!!

Ashley at Nola Flora was just the type of florist I wanted for our wedding! Since we were planning a destination wedding here, I emailed some pics to her and then we finally met in person 5 months before the date. I wasn't terribly picky and trusted her, based on her designs I saw online and in person, that she would create something beautiful.
She mainly used hot pink gerbera daisies and wove in some green like I had requested. I especially liked the small table centerpieces she did for us...simple vases with a gerbera floating in the middle and candles around it.
I'd highly recommend her! You can find her business on Facebook too!

I am truly not a flower person. I am not a girl who can tell the difference between flowers, they generally all look the same to me. But Ashley with NOLA Flora was very helpful when I explained that I only had a generally color scheme in mind. She took my ideas and ran with it. The flowers were beautiful. She was very easy to work with long distance. She made several changes to the floral design and was very understanding of our relatively small floral budget (~$2200).
Converting Non-flower people is one of our favorite things to do... Love love love when a bride says, Well I never really thought about that before, but I Love It!! That's the best!!! You don't have to be a flower lover to appreciate the beauty...
